Ziggy Stardust 
is a tiny opossum who
was rescued by a good samaritan when found  alone in his yard. As he should when finding a lone baby, he waited a while to see if mom would return for it, and then took her to the local animal hospital, who in turn contacted Jelly's Place to take her to the Wildlife Center. Opossums this size might fall off their momma's back, and if she doesn't notice it, will get left behind. Ziggy is doing well and will be going to Marin Wildcare this week.

Hutch

Hutch was born and raised in a dirty back yard where he had to fend for himself against chickens, roosters, and other dogs. He was frightened, cowering when approached, and yiping when being picked up. After developing an infection causing very swollen lymph nodes, his owner surrendered him. He is now being treated with love, affection, and much needed medication. He is starting to feel more comfortable being picked up and being petted, and he loves being held. He is regaining his strength, playfulness, and love of life. You can support Hutch and other animals' care by making a one-time donation or becoming a monthly donor. 
Hutch has been adopted.

Fluffy meets a puppy
Fluffy was found along a railroad track by a homeless person who tried to take care of her, but she had developed a serious upper respiratory infection (URI) that had both her nose and eyes plugged shut. She was only a few weeks old, and stopped eating because she could not smell her food. After she was brought to Julie, she had to be fed through a tube right into her stomach, and she was medicated for the URI. 
Soon after she started eating on her own, but was hand-fed kitten formula with a syringe for two weeks before she developed a taste for regular kitten food. Her eyes were still very inflamed and painful to open. They were washed and medicated daily, until she was able to keep them open. However because of the severity of the URI, the infection had damaged both eyes and she lost her sight. Fluffy had surgery to remove both eyes and has since recovered. Fluffy is a very sweet and energetic kitten. She is very playful and curious, and she likes to climb, chase toys that make noise, and play with her housemates. She loves everyone!
Fluffy will do best in a one-floor home to avoid the danger of falling down stairs.  

UPDATE: Fluffy was adopted!
 
Featured rescue story about Fluffy the blind kitten
Dimples and Hennessy

These  seniors are good friends who were running out of days at the animal shelter. The videos on the right were taken while they were at the shelter. but they have already been placed with a temporary foster family by Jelly's Place. Most senior dogs don't do well and have little chance of being adopted at a community shelter. Both are sweet but shy chihuahuas around 8 years old.  With help from the community, Jelly's Place can provide for future medical needs. Dimples has an old injury and walks with a limp.
Please consider fostering a senior dog and/or contributing to their needs by becoming a monthly donor.

Snoopy, Lucy, and Peppermint Patty
These three cuties were orphaned at birth. Their mom was a senior dog who was mated with a dog larger than her. Her owners did not realize she had been in labor for several days, and when help finally was called, it was too late for the momma dog. She died before they were born. The vet and Julie knew that they had to be removed from her belly quickly before they too died.  Another foster dog who was done nursing her own pups, stepped in for the first day of nursing, and amazingly enough, all three thrived with round-the-clock bottle feeding.
They have been adopted.

Momma and her seven pups
Momma, now Butternut,  is a sweet but shy chihuahua who was rescued from a hoarding situation with 16 dogs in total. Nine of them were pregnant! Butternut was almost due to have her pups, and she was very afraid of people. Julie showed her how to trust and enjoy attention and affection. Two weeks later she had 7 beautiful pups- 2 boys and 5 girls, all reddish/caramel color like her. She is still shy around people she doesn't know, but she just loves attention, and she was a very caring and attentive mom to her pups. She also "adopted" the 3 pups above who were orphaned at birth. Although she did not have milk to nurse them long, she looked after them and became very nervous if they were out of her sight!
Puppies, puppies, and more puppies!
Missy, Porkchop, Dottie, Annie, Hefty, Hemi, and Apple have all been adopted into loving homes.
Kitten on the Roof Rescue
This young cat was stuck on the roof of a house for 6 days. Jelly's Place received a call to help out and loaded up the ladder, trap, net, and cat food to entice the little guy. We set the trap on the roof only to find that the wind closed it before the cat got in. Back to reset it, and luckily we were able to get this hungry and scared little guy off the roof. Then it was off to get neutered before he was released back to his neighborhood. Feral cats and kittens don't typically get adopted, as they hardly ever trust people, so it's best to release them to the area that they are familiar with.
Please don't get on the roof again, little one!

Val yellow lab senior dog rescue story
Val
Val was rescued from the streets. She had several not-yet healed surgical incisions on her mammary glands, and it is thought that she was used as a drug mule. Val was a sweet-as-pie senior golden lab who loved sleeping on the couch. She got along well with other dogs and cats, and she loved being petted. Unfortunately Val developed tumors and became very weak and feeble. She was loved and cared for in her foster home until she crossed the Rainbow Bridge. RIP Val. We love you and miss you.
